Hot Rodd water heater needing reset often

I just installed a Hot Rodd with the on off switch and it works great but once a day it needs the reset button pushed. Any ideas on what causes it to trip? Thanks!

RE: Non RV electrical question

Yes I can find operator manuals but they all say wire according to local code. I will give Star Holman a ring in the morning.

Non RV electrical question

I have done loads of home electrical projects and have wired all of our additions and such but I am completely stumped. We bought a used small conveyor sandwich oven for our ice cream shop. It is marked 208/60/1. Normally you see the voltage as 208-230 meaning it will run at 208 or 220. can I wire it to the 220 circuit? It draws 30 amps which would be a normal 220 draw. Any insight??? I can call the mfg. in the morning but would like to give it a whirl tonight! As always, Thanks!

RE: Brake controller plug and play on 2016 sunstar F53

Yes the plug was part of a bundle. I will check to be sure it was not the OBDII. Thanks for the response!

Brake controller plug and play on 2016 sunstar F53

On our old sightseer the plug and play to connect the brake controller was on top of the steering column. When we bought the 2016 sunstar I pulled off the dash cover and the plug that is there looks nothing like the 2008 ford plug in and nothing like the plug that Winnebago sent with the new coach. Did they move it or did they change plugs?? Thanks!!

ford 6 speed trans

We just traded coaches and the new one has a 6 speed mated to the V-10. The old 5 speed had a "grade brake" type feature and the new one does not seem to kick down so I am guessing it does not have such a feature. I loved it on the old coach but I have to admit the new 6 speed is a big step forward! Any input on the missing "grade brake"? Thanks.

RE: Loadmaster tugs

Mike I am not sure what model we have as I can not locate a model number. What I am curious about is what the electronics are that make it work. I understand the golf cart transaxle and the chain drive but all the relays are beyond me. I simply want to know the why and how of each part so I can replace as needed. I am actually shocked that no one has picked up production as I find ours to be the "go to" device!

Loadmaster tugs

We have an old loadmaster/towmaster tug built by the Fab Shop in Kansas. I was trying to find information on them as it need overhauled and it appears they are no longer in business. Does anyone have any insight? It is a great product and we us it all the time for moving boats in the barn. Thanks!

RE: A/C off of 20 amp service?

Old coach was Sightseer 35J, New coach is 2016 Sunstar 31BE.

A/C off of 20 amp service?

Has anyone ever heard of a single a/c unit not being able to start and run on a 20amp shore power circuit? We bought a new coach and the dealer says don't run a/c unless connected to a 30 amp service or connected to the gen. They say it will cook the compressor. We have always run a/c units in trailers or coaches off a 20 amp circuit without a problem when at home so I am perplexed about what I am missing?? Thoughts?

for better or worse traded off the old coach

For better or worse we traded off our old friend this weekend for a new 2016 Itasca Sunstar 31BE. While we despise the metal bins that Winne uses, at the end of the day a 20K difference to get roto-cast storage bins just was not worth it. The bins on the old Sightseer were literally rotting off. At first glance the Sunstar is definitely down the food chain from the Sightseer. It has more road noise and the furniture and cockpit seats are not as nice as the Sightseer but it is very adequate for our needs and will serve its purpose until we get to retirement and perhaps even into retirement with a few minor upgrades. The new Ford 6 speed transmission is very nice to drive and is a big improvement over the older five speed.

RE: FR3 28DS

Thanks wildtoad we just want a short class A with a king that does not have to fold over when the slide is in. I will look at the ACE floorplans.

RE: FR3 28DS

Geez Bill Great idea.......never thought about the obvious! We don't have a dealer close by so I thought I would ask here as the online floorplan does not show if it is solid or sectioned. Generally the online forums are great sources for like minded folks but obviously you don't fit that mold. Feel free not to offer any more advice.

FR3 28DS

Is the king bed in the rear a solid mattress or is it one that is two pieces when the slide is in. We are looking for a coach that is short with a king. Thanks!

length to wheel base ratio

I seem to recall a thread about 8 years ago concerning the best ratio for handling and I can not find it. Does anyone know the best length to wheel base ratio? Thanks!
